Ali Landry: You Won’t Catch Me on a Cover After Baby

She’s appeared in her fair share of magazines, but former model Ali Landry won’t be caught on their covers showing off her postpartum body after baby arrives.

“It’s frustrating for me when I see moms in Hollywood on a magazine three months after having a baby in a swimsuit. It’s really just not realistic for most moms,” Landry, 39, says in The Bump‘s August issue.

“For me, personally, it takes nine months to put on that weight and it really takes nine months to take it off.”

But while the mom-to-be – she’s due with a baby boy in July – isn’t in a rush to regain her famous figure, Landry is still making an effort to maintain her sense of style with her maternity fashions.

However, the commitment isn’t always so easy – especially when sweats are staring her in the face.

“Part of me wants to wake up in the morning and throw on a big pair of pants – probably my husband’s – and a sweatshirt,” Landry shares. “But when I do that, I look in the mirror and I just don’t feel good about myself. So I really try to pull it all together – and I do feel so much better.”

Before Landry and her husband Alejandro Monteverde welcome their third child together – the couple are already parents to Estela, 6 next week, and Marcelo, 20 months – they are preparing for their son by settling their family into a bigger home.

“We’re bursting at the seams! My kids, Marcelo and Estela, are sharing a room and I want all the children on the same floor as me,” she says.

The fresh start is sure to trigger a certain pregnancy symptom in the expectant actress.

“I have a feeling the nesting is going to come in when I’m packing and unpacking,” she says. “Fortunately, I know that this baby is a boy, and I’ve saved everything from Marcelo, so I’ll be able to reuse a lot of his things.”

As the family of four plan to make the move to their new house, Landry admits there’s someone else who’s not quite ready for the new addition to arrive: soon-to-be big brother Marcelo.

“He wants to be with me all the time and he’s very much still a baby,” she explains. “When I’m around, he clings to me. I might have to call in some of my expert mommy friends to help navigate our way through this.”

As for Estela, she is already envisioning her hairy future with two baby brothers.

“We were at the doctor’s office and the doctor said, ‘How do you like your little brother?’ And she said, ‘He pulls my hair,'” Landry says. “Then the doctor asked, ‘So what do you think about having a new brother?’ And she’s like, ‘I’m going to be bald.'”

The future mom-of-three adds, “I think she knows that double trouble is coming.”
